The NIHR Clinical Research Network (CRN) makes it possible for patients and health professionals across England to participate in clinical research studies within the NHS. The CRN provides the infrastructure that allows high-quality clinical research funded by charities, research funders and life-sciences industry to be undertaken throughout the NHS. It works with patients and the public to make sure their needs are placed at the heart of all research, and providing opportunities for patients to gain earlier access to new and better treatments through research participation.

The Clinical Research Network is made up of 15 Local Clinical Research Networks that cover the length and breadth of England. The CRN delivers research across 30 clinical specialties at a national and local level. This is your opportunity to meet a couple of people who work with the Wessex CRN.


Who will you meet?

Mrs Martine Cross

CRN Wessex Research Delivery Manager


Dr James Bennett

Why should you find out more?

The CRN can support you as a Chief Investigator by:

  • facilitating access to a whole network of potential research sites and information;
  • supporting you to ‘set up’ your study across a number of sites;
  • providing support to ensure sites are able to undertake the study e.g. generic training / staff development;
  • providing practical help in identifying and recruiting patients for Portfolio studies, so that researchers can be confident of completing the study on time and as planned.
